A Winter Hello

Hi! I hope you are keeping warm. We are supposed to get a little snow by tomorrow morning! This little mousey is keeping warm by climbing into his coffee cup!

I made the frame for this image by using Martha Stewart's corner and border punches. I colored the image using a watercolor crayon and a few Distress inks to make a watercolor look. Punched snowflakes were added and I added clear stickles glitter to them. You can see it better in the picture below. I also applied the glitter to different dots on the patterned paper and image.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Stay warm and have a great day!

House Mouse & Friends:  Anything Winter
